General description

Under section 52 of the Schools Standards and Framework Act 1998, Local Authorities are required to provide an outturn statement at the end of each financial year. The purpose of the statement is to provide information on the local authorities actual education spending.

The data contained in this report is derived from part 1 of the Section 52 Education Outturn Statements completed by local authorities.

The data shown in the reports are purely delegated or devolved expenditure by schools for the financial year and does not include any money held centrally by the local authority and spent on behalf of schools.

The data also shows the levels of reserves that individual schools carry forward from one year to another.

Nursery schools only became part of delegated outturn expenditure from 2006/07 onwards so are not shown as part of this data for earlier years.

The information presented here is collected via annual returns from Welsh Local Authorities.
